ISLAMABAD: Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman on Thursday said he will lead the march towards Islamabad on October 27 and warned the government against placing hurdles in his way.
Speaking to the media, he said the march will begin on October 27 in which convoys from across the country would take part.
The JUIF chief said his party has three alternative plans to carry out the march in case the government attempts to create hurdles.
He demanded a fresh election in the country, ruling out any possibility of reconciliation with the government.
"We will come to the D-Chowk. We are not coming with an intention to leave early," he said, adding that he has no plans to change the date of the march.
The maulana, however, gave assurance that the march would be peaceful.
